Jerry Scalesse – Mr. Universe
Training – Pumping – Posing – Interview – Contest
Jerry Scalesse is a bodybuilding champion from Long Island, New York. After winning the Amateur Mr. Universe title, we see Jerry competing with and defeating some of the world’s top professionals.
We worked with Jerry in our London studio on the day after his Mr. Universe victory, taping his pumping, posing and training. In the interview, Jerry shares his thoughts on training, nutrition, steroids, and how he became a top champion. We also include scenes from a TV commercial Jerry taped in England plus all the action from the Mr. Universe prejudging and show.
Jerry is packed with muscle yet is amazingly symmetrical with incredible thighs. As we taped Jerry’s posing from every conceivable angle he oiled, tensed and posed in tank tops as well as trunks. See why this young American has been called the “new” Tom Platz! Make that now the American Dorian Yates!
In the pumping and posing segments he is assisted by his buddy, Joe De Angelis. See solo posing along with duo posing with Joe as the camera explores every muscle and sinew of Jerry’s sweat drenched body – in closeup.
